Scovill Zoo in Decatur Excited to Showcase Remodeled Herpaquarium Building

We're a few weeks away from the Scovill Zoo in Decatur opening up and it won't be ready to showcase opening day, but the zoo is excited about a major project they started over the winter.


Executive Director Ken Frye indicates the herpaquarium building was totally gutted and revamped on the inside.



According to Frye, funding for the project came together from a significant donation and then a grant through the State of Illinois.



The Scovill Zoo opens on April 1. Frye hopes within the first month of the zoo being open the herpaquarium will open up at some point. 


Frye directs anyone wanting more information about the spring season ahead at the zoo to the Scovill Zoo Facebook page.
